    Idea for a one-shot:

    The player are hired to knock down an inn by the local goblins because the inn is filled with shady characters who keep hiring adventurers to kill the goblins. There's some heavy proof it's because someone wants to build on goblin land.

    A mad dwarf blacksmith has been crafting a number of over-elaborate weapons. While the weapons are functional, the materials they're made from are worth far more than is needed. However, unknowledgable buyers have been walking away with these weapons (for the price of a normal weapon), making them targets for the local gangs.

    A fountain of youth has been discovered. Unfortunately, it is youth for only one person. As the next person dips in its waters, the previous person becomes old and haggard. The local guards' attempts to stopping people using the well, due to the rapid increase in ageing it inflicts on everyone else, have been rather ill thought out. The guards are now far too old to function effectively. Catch whoever keeps bathing in the waters, and kill them to return everyone's age back to normal... before you are also drained of your youth.

    An elf has developed an obsession with collecting dwarf artefacts. Knowing the trouble she'll get into if she's found out by the rest of her village, she has asked you to find and sell a number of other dwarf artefacts to the rest of the village. Hopefully when the rest of the village also has dwarvish items, they'll just be hypocrites, instead of legitimately have a moral high-ground.
